Vuelta Stage 15 Preview

This one is kinda similair to stage 14 but there are a few key differences. First of all the start of the stage is not as hard. Because of that I think it is more likely we will see a big like 20+ riders breakaway this stage. This stage is also 230.8 kilometers long which […]

Vuelta Stage 8 Indepth Preview

Stage 8 starts with a ‘flat’ first 80 kilometers. This means 2 things, a lot of riders can get into the breakaway also the non-climbers. But its also easier to control for the GC teams if they got any plans. The stage is a typical Vuelta length I would say with 164 kilometers. The finishing […]
